The "Go-to guy"

So, the top story on Google News right now is a NYT piece on the "Drawbacks" of GOP opposition to Obamacare, and who does Adam Nagourney quote as the "conservative" who thinks this is a bad, bad, horrible thing for the right? Whose remarks prompted Nagourney to say that our side's opposition to this fucking catastrophe "sowed doubts with the public about its [the GOP's] ideas and leadership credentials"? And who was directly quoted as saying that "this thing is not as catastrophic as advertised"?

Here's a clue: Gibbsy is a fan, eh.

David Frum is super scary-smart

I won't bother linking it since I don't feel like driving traffic his way, but The Twat took a break from polishing his boyfriend Barry's knob  today to write a column about how Obamacare is a disaster.  For America?  For freedom? 

Nope.  For conservatives and the GOP because (shocka!) we didn't compromise enough for his liking with Teh Won.

And he titled it "Waterloo."

Yes, really.

Oh, and talk radio and Sarah Palin and Fox News are all terrible, too, according to this fraud, so we should all turn away from them and, well, elect people like The Twat, I guess.

My response?

more...

Dire Predictions

Hate to be the bearer of bad news but...

The Healthcare bill WILL pass.  It will be signed.  Also, the Supreme Court will NOT overturn it based on the "Slaughter" situation because the Court generally will avoid any interference with how the legislative branch accomplishes its "voting" on bills.

So, I think its time we start game planning for what we do next.  Constitutionality of the insurance mandate?  State resistance?  Riot?

Update:   This comment got out of control so here it is in an update...

1)  It isn't my job to motivate you.

2)  You being motivated will have literally 0 impact on whether a bunch of crapweasel Democrats do what they want to do instead of what they think they need to do to keep their jobs.

3)  Eat my shit.

4)  If I or you or anyone in the American electorate had ANY power in the matter I'd be in front of the line screaming and fucking pushing those fucktards toward the correct decision but they have CLEARLY decided that what the public WANTS is irrelevant.  They're going for it.  The goals of the socialist party can finally be realized and if a few heads have to roll, it'll be okay.  They've set the self destruct mechanism and killed the only guy with the code. 

Its just a matter of how shiteously they rape the Constitution before they're done.  Hopefully they are egregious enough to motivate the populace into supporting a complete undoing of this piece of shit.  Probably by two years into the higher taxes with no benefits the economy will be so unbelievably fucked up that it'll be destroyed.

But this bill this week?  Passing.  Get used to the idea.  Its like when people say "Iran won't nuke us because they'll be destroyed."  That stupid statement only makes sense when Iran is a rational actor.  The Democrats, similarly, aren't rational actors so it will be equally invalid as an argument.

And if that won't stop them, then go ahead and tell me what will.  I can't think of anything we have to offer that they want more than this.

The Conservative Soul

That's the title of one of Excitable Andi's Books. And he should know all about that after one of his "readers" assures him that "If Obama outlasts [conservative critics of his health insurance takeover--ed.] -- if he takes every punch and emerges victorious -- then two key things will happen."

Quoth St. Andrew's reader (who totally isn't one of the voices in his head):

First, the voices on the right advocating opposition will have to account for their failing. Second, Obama will gain more leeway and tolerance from the middle-of-the-road voter, further strengthening his hand. In effect, succeeding grants Obama the right to move even slower in the future, as it suits him. Trust is (re)born.
Riiiiiiiight. If this hugely unpopular bill gets rammed through, everything will be FUCKING AWESOME for Obama and a disaster for the GOP. Because they failed somehow to stop a gigantic, expensive overhaul of the nation's health insurance system. And if the Dems ram this piece of shit through, Obama gets to claim victories when his deadlines expire. Because...um, shut up, that's why.

Oh, and what does the sage of "The Conservative Soul" have to say in response?
Do what you can to get healthcare passed. Yeah. I'm talking to you. Call your congressman and Senator. Organize.
Yeah.

I Hate Rude Behavior In A Man. I Won't Tolerate It

Last week, a commenter came over here and in the course of one of the discussions, decided to cross the line and demean, insult, and otherwise cast malice upon people who are members of the GLBT community, not for their views, but for their lifestyle. The comments this fellow made went beyond legitimate policy arguments and went to the pointless, cruel, and stupid route, and hurt and offended several people who come here to participate in our slice of Moronia.

I was so angry, I actually wrote down in MS-Word (fuck you, MS-Word!) a response that I was itching to give to this person, should he choose to reappear. Sadly, the guy did not, and I now can't find the response (fuck you, My Mad Computer Haxxor Skillz!), but it was passionate. I was and continue to be angry that people with whom I share a common bond (opposing leftism) and a Fake Internet Friendship were told they were not worthy of consideration based not on their political views, but on the fact their sexuality is different than his.

Fuck that. Fuck it with a Roast Beef Combo with rocket AIDS in place of au jus. While this is not my site, I do not look kindly upon somebody coming along and demeaning my friends and cohorts. I will not tolerate those who wish to go beyond legitimate political debate and into bigotry directed at or about my friends. I fucking look at people based on whether or not they are decent people, share my views, and just want to be left the fuck alone by the Nannyarchy, and not other things. Maybe I am wrong and naive, but fuck it. I just don't like seeing any of my friends hurt.

And since I can't duplicate what I wrote, please allow me to present an audio visual portrayal of how to handle people who are assholes.
